Date of Death Appraisals in the Bay Area
Understanding estate settlement can be a complicated process that many people are not prepared for. To navigate through the process, finding an appraiser who understands local legislation and federal regulations is critical for achieving the smoothest settlement possible.
What are Estate Settlement Appraisals?
Typically, estate settlements require the assistance of attorneys and accountants. A piece of the settlement requires assessing property values through an appraiser. Therefore, estate settlement appraisals are necessary for property inheritance and tax purposes. Through our experience with estate settlement, our appraisal firm has vast experience collaborating with attorneys and financial consultants around Martinez and surrounding communities.
As for the appraisals themselves, our firm can help determine retrospective appraisals and current value appraisals. Retrospective appraisals involve valuing an estate based on a prior date, typically the owner’s date of death. Therefore, estate appraisals may often include date of death appraisals. However, current value appraisals are also often requested to determine property value based on present-day factors.
